Here’s How to Get Your WordPress Performance Tuning to Perfect Now
The best way to get your performance tuning to perfect is to start now, says WordPress performance tuning expert Mark Haines.
“If you start right now, you’ll never get there,” he says.
The best way, he says, is to do everything in the same order.
Hainies is the founder and CEO of Performance Tuner, a company that helps people tune their WordPress websites, which he says are an important part of their website’s performance.
“People get excited by the wordpress plugins, but they have to do it the exact same way they did before,” he tells us.
“And when they’re done, they’re going to have a different experience.
You should never do it that way.”
Haines also says that there’s no reason to start with a WordPress plugin until you’ve done it a few times and you’ve figured out how to set it up.
“The best thing to do is to get a WordPress account and go do it,” he advises.
“But I know from my experience that people don’t really go that route, because they think that if you’re doing it right, you’re going in the right direction.”
Hassan Othman, founder and chief operating officer of WordPress performance and analytics company Performance Tuners, says that if people don`t set up their website the same way, they’ll have a “very different experience” in terms of what their website can and cannot do.
As you can see, Othmans advice is exactly the opposite of what most people hear when they hear performance tuning.
“When people hear it, they think it’s about getting the right plugins for the right site, and that’s just not true,” he told us.
The best part about performance tuning is that, Ondman says, the WordPress plugin is the one that’s going to give you the most control over your website’s behavior.
He explains that this can be achieved by setting up a WordPress dashboard, or by setting your WordPress website up with a plugin.
“I would strongly recommend that you use a plugin because you have full control over it,” Othmen tells us, “and that plugin gives you the ability to make sure that everything works the way you want it to.”
Hannes says that the best way for performance tuning isn’t to go in the wrong direction.
“Do your best to be as precise as possible,” he explains.
“You want to get as much control over the performance of your site as you can, and you want to make it as smooth as possible.”
